The pictures are from an interestring shape that I found on the beach in front of Lyme Regis mudstone cliffs. My first thoughts were a fragment of an Ammonite, but any suggestions, as to what it may have been, would be much appreciated. Thanks.18lr1.jpg  18lr2.jpg  18lr3.jpg  18lr4.jpg

Look like mechanical marks made by some kind of cutting/drilling/digging tool. I'd be surprised if it had a palaentological origin.

Thanks Dirty Pete.

Aw noooo! I thought I had a nice fossil there.

What about this one then? Same place, same day. I'm not sure if it's animal, or vegetable. Please don't tell me this isn't a fossil too.

Now that must be a squashed ammonite with a layer of fibrous calcite (beef) on one of the sides.

That one looks more like an ammonite ...
